As AFI wraps up one of their last shows shadowing the East Coast, they leave another 10-song mark into our memories. Added to their set list for the 2nd time this tour, and played for the first times since 2010 was “No Poetic Device” from one of their darkest and most iconic albums, “Black Sails in the Sunset” from 1999.

Staples to their Mourning in Amerika set become clear as “Girl’s Not Grey, Paper Airplanes, Miss Murder and Snow Cats”. They have played these select four songs at all eight shows so far during this tour. Check out the album breakdown below!

  1. Girl’s Not Grey (Sing the Sorrow)
  2. 17 Crimes (Burials)
  3. Of Greetings and Goodbyes (The Art of Drowning)
  4. Paper Airplanes (Sing the Sorrow)
  5. Beautiful Thieves (Crash Love)
  6. Days of the Phoenix (The Art of Drowning)
  7. Snow Cats (Blood Album)

This may well be my favourite setlist of the tour yet. 7 albums covered in a 10 song set, and only 2 songs from sing the sorrow.

EDIT: that’s not a get rid of Sing the sorrow plea, it’s one of my favourite albums ever, more just a surprise at so little (even if 2 was the maximum played from any album)


It was damn good so glad they did it again and I snagged it since I got fast pass fucked in philly amd git far left stage cause of bs line drama with a few people I dislike
